The news was announced on Saturday in Berlin, one of the four hosts of this year's games, by the Polish Basketball Association head Radoslaw Piesiewicz and Sports Minister Kamil Bortniczuk.

 

Cyprus, Finland and Estonia will be the three other hosts of the 2025 championship.

 

"It's a great development, it coincided with an excellent performance of Polish basketball players, who for the first time in 51 years, made it to the semi-finals," Bortniczuk told PAP.

 

Poland hosted the European basketball championship twice, in 1963 and 2009.
